There is Life After the Thesis

After chronicling my thoughts, feelings, ideas, and experiences throughout the thesis process on this blog (formerly entitled Rites of a Thesis), it seemed odd to me to simply let the blog go just because I had turned in my thesis and graduated. I don't want to merely "shelve" my thesis nor do I want all that I got from my time at Naropa to lie dormant. I want my thesis to continue to live and breathe and become, and I would like all the teachings and experiences I had during my time at Naropa to do the same. So I am keeping the blog (changing the title), and am commiting to myself to (w)rite on as I journey forward.

New Beginnings (to My Day)

I emailed my Meditation Instructor a copy of yesterday's blog post. He offered a few good suggestions.

He asked why I did my Morning Pages first. He also asked if it helped, or possibly hindered, my meditation practice. I do my Morning Pages first, in part, because I (think) that's what Julia Cameron suggested, and second: I get to drink my first cup of coffee while doing so.

It was seeming, too, that the writing was helping me get more chatter out of my head prior to sitting. However, last Wednesday good ol' Sarah P. settled herself in pretty well during my sitting practice, but she did not appear on one sheet of my Morning Pages.

Tomorrow morning I'm going to try something different. Tomorrow I am going to walk my dog first, drink my coffee (I definitely need to drink my coffee), meditate and then write. Just to see what happens.
